plain and simple.

I've found a new print that I'd love to put up in our home.
I found one on a canvas scroll with this message:
During the early spring of 1939 and the war with Germany almost inevitable, the British government's Ministry of Information commissioned a number of propaganda posters to be displayed throughout the country upon the outbreak of war. The plan for the posters was to relay a message from King George VI to his people that all capable measures to defend the country were being taken.

Using the crown of King George VI as the only graphic element it simply read "Keep Calm and Carry On." Although some of the posters did make it on to walls {below}, the poster was never officially issued and so remained almost unseen by the general public. That is until a copy turned up over 50 years later within a pile of dusty old books bought from an auction.

They don't have record of who originially came up with the slogan; however, the reproduction is a tribute to that unknown person who created it. People across the world are still finding reassurance in its wonderful and handsome design with the very special attitude of mind that it managed to convey.
